GO! GO! GO! WORLD is a tame, family-friendly version of the infamous 'mondo' shockumentary, MONDO CANE, made in Italy by genre director Antonio Margheriti. For those unfamiliar with this particular sub-genre, these films are basically clip compilations, themed by the exotic, gruesome or bizarre, linked by a supposedly comedic narrator.

And it's fair to say that GO! GO! GO! WORLD pales in comparison to its more outrageous companions in this genre. There's little here that isn't tame or PG-rated by today's standards. However, all of the usual elements are present, albeit in a more diluted form: there are numerous strip-tease acts, tribal rituals in Borneo and Papua New Guinea, and elaborate death rites around the world.

Bizarrely, there's also a focus on cars, for some reason, along with some bad taste footage of dogs being eaten in China (don't worry, none of it is explicit). Unfortunately, Stephen Garret's narrator is one of the most nauseating around, always ready to deliver an ill-advised quip that usually has either sexist or racist undertones (sometimes both). And as a whole, the film is incredibly dated, more of a quaint exploration of what "enlightened" sensibilities considered shocking back in the day - although I suspect this would have seemed dated on first release!
